Watts and Wright 60ft cruiser

About This Vessel

A rare opportunity. Its not often vessels of historic significance come on the market, even less often when they have been re-furbished and renovated, such as Wangadir.

Built by Watts and Wright in Brisbane, launched 1940, served in WWII before later plying Northern waters as a Coastal cargo carrier before being converted to a recreation vessel. Significantly restored and renovated in 2015 and subsequently as a private recreational cruiser and on the Register as an historic vessel since 2008.

Wangadir is Gardiner powered, the engine also being restored by Bryant Brothers in 2015. She is a spacious coastal cruiser with old world charm and some modern conveniences, the best of both worlds.

Beautifully presented, classy and elegant, historic yet with modern appliances and equipment. With all the work done she is now in excellent condition ready to continue cruising in style. Located Brisbane, inspections by private appointment please.
